The 22-year-old, two-time Grand Slam tennis champion shared a few bikini photos this month because it’s summertime, and, well, why not, you know?

But after sharing them, Naomi noticed people in her comments trying to discourage her from posting photos like these — urging her not to ruin her “good image.”

…and this appeared frequently in her comments, both on Instagram and Twitter.

Many fans came to her defense, but Naomi decided to address the comments herself, revealing how creepy she thought they were.

I just wanna say it’s creeping me out how many people are commenting @ me to maintain my “innocent image” and “don’t try to be someone your not”. You don’t know me, I’m 22, I wear swimsuits to the pool. Why do you feel like you can comment on what I can wear?
